What is a "Day In the Life Video?" New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains

Posted by attorney Gerald Oginski

How do you convey to someone, in images and words, the true extent of someone's suffering and the trauma that they have endured? Besides inviting them into your home to show them how you live and exist day to day, the only other alternative is to have people who have been there explain what they see.

That is the traditional form of testimony. You have parents, relatives and friends come into court, take the witness stand and testify about their observations being in the home with a severely injured, incapacitated or disabled victim.

However, as you know, video is one of the best ways to communicate. It allows a viewer to see, hear and understand for themselves exactly what the injured victim is going through from morning till night.

A 'Day in the life' video literally follows the injured victim around from the moment they wake up in the morning until they go to sleep at night. What better way to visually communicate the images, trials and tribulations associated with how someone lives following a major catastrophic injury.
